No Classroom For Students In This J&K School For 20 years

For students in this Jammu and Kashmir school, classes happen under the open sky. Established in 1999, Government Primary School in Turga village has 50 students, but no classroom, according to an ANI report.
Sitting on the bare ground they read out loud what their teachers teach but are often forced to go home due to adverse weather conditions.
Village sarpanch and school teachers had raised the issue with the authorities but in vain, says the ANI report.
“50 students are enrolled in this school, but school building can’t accommodate them all. I appeal to the Governor to help us,” said P Kumar, Sarpanch told ANI.
The Chief Education Officer, however, has said that he has instructed the Zonal officers to give more information about such schools.
“I have instructed all the Zonal Education Officers to bring to my notice all such schools which don’t have adequate facilities or their work has been pending, so we can work on them,” said Daljeet Singh, Chief Education Officer, Udhampur told ANI.
